PocketSat+ also runs very nicely in the Garnet Virtual Machine on my Nokia N810 (better, actually, than on my Palm!). My only concern is the longevity of the Garnet VM; it's supposed to "expire" in a couple of weeks, and their website has no update posted. (Not to steal the thread, but anyone know what they're up to?)
Great satellite program for the one-handed-computing format.
